The Currys sat down with 44 for a serious power dinner Monday night in San Francisco at Ayesha’s restaurant, International Smoke. Her collaborator and chef, Michael Mina, posed with the smiling trio and shouted out Barack, saying … “No greater privilege than to cook for this man on Presidents Day. Thank you for the highest honor @barackobama!”
The star power at the dinner table didn’t stop there — John Legend and Chrissy Teigen showed up to make it a fab fivesome. Chrissy also shared a shot of herself enjoying a drink with Chef Michael.
As for why they’re all in the Bay Area … Barack, Steph and John are all taking part in the My Brother’s Keeper conference in Oakland, aimed at supporting boys and young men of color. It’s being hosted by the Obama Foundation.
Chrissy Metz could not be clearer … she did NOT call Alison Brie a bitch on the Golden Globes red carpet … she called her a babe.
We got Chrissy leaving an after-party Sunday night in WeHo at Delilah … and she scoffed at the notion she would shade her fellow actress like that.
As the rain poured down, our photog asked Chrissy about the semi-off-mic passing comment, and she squarely dismissed what some people say they heard. The comments came during a Facebook Live pre-show hosted by AJ Gibson and Missi Pyle. It actually seems Chrissy started making her comment and trailed off because she was conscious of the mic.
For Allison’s part, she said afterward, “Nothing but love for @chrissymetz !! Rumors can’t keep us down!”
Chrissy Metz must’ve forgotten how a microphone works — ’cause she called fellow actress Alison Brie a bitch ahead of the Golden Globes without realizing her mic was on.
The ‘This Is Us’ star was being interviewed on the Globes’ own Facebook Live pre-show by AJ Gibson and Missi Pyle when toward the end of their chat, AJ asked Chrissy if she knew who Alison was. Chrissy sarcastically responded, “Do I?”
AJ said Alison was on the other end of the red carpet, and as the camera panned to Alison with another Globes host … Chrissy can be heard saying, “She’s such a bitch.” Digital copies of the moment quickly surfaced online.
It’s terribly unfortunate anyone would think much less run a story that was completely fabricated! I adore Alison and would never say a bad word about her, or anyone! I sure hope she knows my heart. https://t.co/IdeN2x2j9q
It’s unclear if Chrissy was aware her mic had picked up the comment, but it doesn’t appear Alison heard her as she didn’t react. Chrissy commented on her remark … saying she adores Alison and would never say a bad word about her or anyone … adding, “I sure hope she knows my heart.”
She does not explicitly deny saying the words though, nor does she offer context in how they were delivered.
Alison has been nominated for her first-ever Golden Globe for her role in “GLOW” — and Chrissy, of course, has been nominated a couple times already for her role on the NBC drama.
Weirdly enough … they’ve posed together at events before, and there doesn’t seem to be any surface-level bad blood between them. Behind closed doors, though … no comment.
